While the transformation has been less dramatic than that of peer Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez has remade her image in 2013.

Her role in the racy movie “Spring Breakers” and her suggestive hit single “Come & Get It” demonstrate that the product of more than a dozen child-oriented films and TV programs is moving in a new direction.

She’ll be at the Sprint Center on Sunday.

Emblem3, a boy band from television’s “The X Factor,” and teenaged Internet sensation Christina Grimmie open the show. Washington’s Emblem3 performs an antiseptic brand of reggae-tinged pop. New Jersey’s Grimmie creates manicured soul in the style of Florence and the Machine.

Tickets range from $26.50 to $97.50.
